When Kissshot says her age, is she counting her human years too, or just the years she has been a vampire?

Good point, though if she didn't add human years then we can assume she lived as a human for 27-28 years.

I know I'm just beating a dead by now but I really want to see stories such as these:
Stories about the past
-Kissshot when she was a human and how she got turned into a vampire
-Oshino when he was in college and the occult club
-Ononoki's past and how she became Kagenui's shikigami

Stories can could happen
-Kanbaru collecting the devil parts
-Hanekawa's world tour

I'd like to see the Kissshot one the most.

Things I got from Koi:
-Nadeko is an alcoholic
-Araragi can be really annoying if he wanted to be

With season 2 finished, the final season have a huge weight on it's shoulder as it has a lot of questions that it needs to answer. Right off the top of my mind are:
-Who is Ougi
-Where is Oshino
-What happened in the missing timeframe in Shiro
-What does Gaen want
-What is so special about the Gaen bloodline
-How did Araragi know that Nadeko snuck into his room in Otori
-How did Hitagi find out Araragi was in danger in Otori
-What created the negative energy that lead Kissshot here

Almost all of season 2 have been a setup for a giant revelation to be revealed in the upcoming books. I just Nisio doesn't leave any questions unanswered because it would be like having an itch under your skin that you couldn't scratch.

BTW it seems Ononoki have become Hachikuji's replacement. She mentioned that she was going to Araragi's house to play. With that being said Araragi went to the shrine when he should have been playing with her.

I definitely want to see the one about Oshino the most, that by itself could be another series.

You know, I just realized something. Shinobu always talk about how she wants to defeat the sun because it's her natural enemy. What if the phoenix inside of Tsukihi is actually connected to the sun and if she dies outside of natural causes, the sun dies as well? (Of course this is kind of impossible since Kagenui tried to killed her, but it's also possible that being a specialist she has ways around this.)

A vampire would have to do that, i believe. And phoenix's are higher up on the Kaii scale than vampires, or so i've heard.

Depends. If we are talking about regeneration powers than phoenix is god-tier while vampires are only on good-tier. Everything else vampire wins.

I'm bored so I'm gonna a power ranking of all the characters based on what I've seen (because we all love rankings):
Spoiler:


These are just my assumptions so don't go thinking these are their official power levels. I didn't add certain characters because we either haven't seen them in battle or not enoough data.

Black Hanekawa is Neko Mode. Normal Hanekawa doesn't have any powers so her strength is only on normal human level. I didn't include Rainy Devil because it doesn't appear enough.

I don't know if these stats are really meaningful. For example, vampires have low defense in the sense they regenerates, but that in itself is a good defense. Other characters instead have an agility that could make up for that, like Black Hanekawa. Also,

I listed vampire regen under Powers so that Defense only stands for blocking, physical toughness and all that jazz. I don't consider taking a hit to the face and then growing it back a good defense.

Can we honestly say BH v.2 and v.3 was weaker? V.2 never fought seriously and I don't believe v.3 did either. The source of their power is Hanekawa's intelligence which all three had access too.

I also realize there stats are not that meaningful and I guess I wanted satisfy myself because we never get any serious fights in the series to truly determine who was stronger. As someone who has read shonen manga all his life I needed it to fill my thirst.

Truth to be told, I did spend some time thinking of a possible card game for Bake. I wanted to put together different card game mechanics, like Munchkin and Bang!. The characters had three stats: power, intelligence and lovability, and also some special ability or restriction (Hachikuji couldn't play "house" cards, for example). I wanted to introduce a card mechanic where people could start a "discussion" like in Bake, and each following person had to play cards like "boke", "tsukkomi" or "wordplay", and those who couldn't play a card would incur a penality. I never managed to devise a scoring mechanism though.
